    Stephen Hawking, CH CBE FRS FRSA, Science's brightest star has died aged 76.

    Stephen William Hawking has died aged 76, he deserves to be remembered for many reasons not least having out lived his life expectancy by 51 years. It is a testimony to his incredible brain that every conceivable technology was used that we may hear his words.
    Some say his achievements were in his ability to ask the right questions ,not his ability to answer them, some say his greatest achievement was bringing the complexity of time and space to the masses in his book "A brief History of time", whatever you may think of him its hard not to admire the man.

    RIP.

    Well done - an OP much worthier of its subject than the earlier one.

    Perhaps under the circumstances the mods might consider merging the old thread with this one, giving this one precedence?
